    Hello,

    I was just hired for a part-time teaching position. I will be working a total of 8.5 hours per WEEK. Does anyone have any idea what my salary might possibly be? I should find out in a few days but I was kind of a last minute hire and I can't imagine what I would possibly get paid. I have 9 years previous teaching experience.

    It looks like you're a 0.2 employee. I would be surprised if you got paid more than about $10k per year.

    Can you do an estimate based off whatever the hourly rate for teachers in your district are? Or figure out what 20% of a full time salary would be?

    Do you think they will start me on the step I should be on (step 10) or start me at step 1?

    Can you call someone in HR? Is none of this information in your contract?

    In our district, people coming into the district from other districts start no higher than like step 5 or something. Even if you taught for 20 years, you'd still start at step 5. Talking to HR and reviewing your contract are the best things you can do right now to find out what your specific district does.

    They should start you on step 10- here they would.

    In my district they have some teachers that are paid hourly rather than assigning them the title of .4, etc. those that they pay hourly make significantly less *like only $30/hour....so I guess it could vary greatly!

    I haven't met with HR yet......it's sort of a last minute thing. I should know more by Tues. I am just impatient!

    I'm in a similar situation. I'm .5 and teaching 2 classes and wondering how my contract hours are structured. I know I have to go to all teacher workdays etc, but I doubt those are included since they just cut teacher pay in half.

    If you are a regular employee and say home tutor- you would make like $53/hour for your time....but the positions that are not tenure track- push in teachers that work 17 hours a week- they are not part of the union so they only get $30/hr .....I've never heard of anything like it anywhere else, but I guess its a way the district saves A LOT of money!

    I'm a full time salaried teacher and I made less than $30/hr. if you break it down into an hourly wage!

    Also, apparently my district doesn't count any experience from other districts- just found that out from a coworker a few days ago. That doesn't seem fair!

    Well, we are in a high cost of living area so full time tenured track teachers most make more than that...the part time 30/hr times 17 hours a week times 40 weeks in a year is roughly $20,000/year

    That's what I'm asking. What's the hourly breakdown for salaried employees?

    Well salaried employees don't get paid hourly? But I believe the median income is somewhere in the high 80's.

    A brand new teacher with no experience and just a bachelors is I believe $56,000 this year.

    I realize that salaried employees don't get paid hourly, but it's easy to figure out what the hourly pay would be if you divide the annual salary by the number of days worked each year and then by the number of contracted hours each day. Knowing the hourly salary that your district pays might be helpful in determining what the hourly pay would be for someone who is paid on a part-time basis. Nevermind.

    I understand what you are saying.
    Like for me it goes like this:
    $44k a year/185 contract days = 237/8 hours a day = $29 an hour


    At my district the level you are on when you are an incoming employee is based on your experience years. You start off where ever you were at your previous district.

    My 1st payday was Nov 1st for my new PART-TIME SLP job, but it doesn't yet reflect how it will be from now on. I'll hv to wait another month to truly see, but for having Mondays off, it's not bad! :)

    I called to check the rent amt for a couple of apts in my area. There's a new complex being built, so no info just yet. Another complex nearby is $1375 for a 798 sq ft 1 bed/1bath & starting at $1461 for a 2 bedroom. This is NOT including utilities, water, gas, light, etc. So this will give me an idea.

    Wow, very nice!
